"Cancelled colonoscopy"

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital / General surgery

My husband has taken time off work to take bowel prep for a colonoscopy. This not only resulted in loss of pay. He fasted and took the bowel prep mixture which caused 18 bowel movements. On arrival at the endoscopy unit he was told the procedure was cancelled due to an admin error and the Dr that should have done it was still in India. He will now need to go through it all again. Grimsby admin is a joke. They should all be made to take bowel prep and see if they like going to the loo 18 times for nothing.
